There used to be an Arizona Guild that met at Tandy in Tempe. It was disbanded several years ago but I still have names and contact info for some of the old members. In fact someone probably still has the membership book and info.

Many of the old members still show up at Tandy Tempe on Wednesday afternoon/evening to sit around and work on projects. The manager, Jim Augustson, keeps the store open until 7:00pm on Wednesdays as long as someone is wanting to stay and work. Jim is also very helpful with any project you bring in to work on.

I have a leather shop in Phoenix and would welcome anyone looking to start a formal or informal group meeting place.

I do holsters, saddles, rifle scabbards, knife sheathes, chaps, chinks, Tooling, ect.

But I learn the most from people beginning leather work. The questions asked by them are the most valuable!

Once in a while I teach a class at Tandys on Greenway/35th Ave. Phoenix and most of the time it teaches me something!

Let me know, I can schedule my production around a group meeting, space will be available to anyone interested, beginner or advanced. Once a week? every other week? evenings? Mornings? I'm open to the group time wise.

Shop is located on 7th Ave. North of the 101 and South of Deer Valley Rd. (just south of the Deer Valley Airport)
